  • Chris I

    Hell yeah!!! A vote of 833 ballots doesn’t mean $hit, but at least he’s still at the top. It’s time for RP to take the presidency. End our foreign policy, audit/end the Fed, get rid of the PATRIOT Act, end the TSA violations, end corporate/social welfare, and collapse the extraordinarily corrupt, wasteful, and incompetent War on Drugs. RP 2012 – the MSM will try and crush him over the next year, but they can all kiss my a$$ because all those who TRULY understand political problems today don’t listen to what the stupid MSM say anyway.
